Luna Pinot Grigio 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Luna Vineyards Pinot Grigio 2012 is a blend of 94.4% Pinot Grigio, 4.6 % Chardonnay and 1% Albarino that was fermented in stainless steel with no barrel fermentation or malo-lactic fermentation. A pale straw in color, this California white offers aromas of ripe pear, guava, and honeysuckle on the nose. On the palate, flavors of green apple pastries with mouth-filling, fleshy texture, wonderful balance and a refreshing finish.

Walk through the wrought iron gate and enter another world. Drink in the rustic beauty of olive trees, towering poplars, and leafy oaks that landscape the grounds surrounding our estate's Italianate architecture. Be transported by our spectacular setting to another time, another place while enjoying every moment of the here and now that Luna Vineyards offers. When George Vare and Mike Moone first laid eyes on the Luna property in 1995, they instantly recognized the magic, and the amazing potential, of its estate vineyards. Plus, it was perfectly located along the Silverado Trail. So they bought the property and followed their dream, building a winery that paid tribute to the varietals that set Napa Valley apart. They also planted visionary varietals like Pinot Grigio and Sangiovese, which weren’t then well known in Napa Valley. Read less

Very dry, bitter, reminds me of Italian style white blends. Strange texture, almost oily or greasy. Did not like it very much.

To be fair, I am not a fan of Pinot Gris'. Light, clear color (pale straw) Light nose, tropical fruit aromas Medium dry with balanced acid; crisp with light body. Citrus and mineral flavors. I like this Pinot Grigio, would enjoy a glass during one of our hot Phoenix days.

Really quite surpprised how much I enjoyed this. The best quality is just how fresh this wine feels. Sweet green apple and melon, pale straw in appearance but very very fresh. And for the price too, its brilliant. I usually don't like Pinot Grigio but am certainly making an exception for this one.

The 2011 Pinot Grigio is a pale straw color. Aromas of pear, green apple, white peach and jasmine carry the nose. Hints of Asian spice fill the mouth and the wonderful minerality and full-bodied texture carry through a delicious lemony finish. - WineryBLEND:86% Pinot Grigio9% Albarino3% Chenin Blanc2% Chardonnay
